Molecular Markers in Horticulture Symposium 2013

In the last few decades, the discovery of new molecular markers has revolutionized plant breeding, offering the scientific community a wide range of tools suitable for developing novel and improved accessions characteristics in a variety of species. Several fields of research have benefited from the application of these techniques. For example, molecular markers have been extensively employed for the detection of loci controlling important agronomical traits using association analysis, germplasm characterization, cultivar protection, population investigation and phylogenetic analyses.

To date, the availability of complete or nearly complete genome sequences of several plant species, has facilitated molecular marker development, making their use more affordable and efficient. In parallel, improvement in high throughput genotyping technologies and sequencing strategies has allowed extraordinarily profound investigations of the genomes of both model and non-model organisms, with the exciting possibility of constiting novel ideotypes.

In order to discuss the progress achieved by exploiting molecular markers in plant sciences and the challenges for the future, the International Society for Horticulture Science (ISHS) in collaboration with the Fondazione Edmund Mach is currently organizing the Molecular Markers in Horticulture Symposium. This event will take place from September 25th to 27th in Riva del Garda (Trento, Italy) situated on the charming shores of Lake Garda.

Registration will be open with March 2013. Early registration until end of July. Here the registration Fees.

Abstract for oral and poster presentation can be submitted with March 2013. Deadline for their submission is end of July 2013.

Fondazione Edmund Mach has hosted in Autumn 2012 the 6th edition of the Rosacae Genomics Conference. An international event focussed on the genomics of the Rosacae family; some of the most recent advancement obtained in this research fields has then been developed for the breeding and productive sector with the application of molecular markers.
